Nah, they just sit where I left them and do not do a darn thing. Lazy guns! Reply Save a criminal, throw the guns in jail Reply I realize it’s not very libertarian of me, but I almost support forcibly sterilizing anyone stupid enough to believe an inanimate object is responsible for a person’s actions.
